The National Junior Honor Society was founded in 1929 and is a worldwide organization. Students must maintain high grades and become good citizens, and must participate in service projects throughout the year. Students are typically inducted at the end of the seventh grade, and spend their eight grade years working with the organization.
Earlier this month, the Acton Middle School campus held its NJHS induction ceremony. Sixty-one students were inducted during that ceremony.
Admission into the National Junior Honor Society does not automatically grant a student entrance into the National Honor Society. The NHS was founded in 1921, and is for high-achieving high school students.
Granbury High School’s chapter of the National Honor Society inducted 90 members to its ranks earlier this year, bringing the total number of students in its NHS chapter to 157. In high school, students must maintain a 3.75 cumulative GPA in addition to exemplifying the five pillars.
Between Acton Middle School, Granbury Middle School and Granbury High School, there are 251 students in an honor society in Granbury ISD.
